To meet the needs of local healthcare employers, the Galveston Community College District
Board of Regents approved the construction of a 64,000-square-foot Health Sciences
Education Center on the college’s main campus at the corner of 39th Street and Avenue
R in September 2021.
Designed by PBK Architects of Houston, the Health Sciences Education Center will be
three stories tall with a footprint and layout similar to a medical center. The facility
will align with the aesthetics of the campus and community and will contain classrooms,
laboratories, simulation labs, lecture halls, student study spaces and offices.
The construction of this contemporary instructional facility is part of the college’s
strategic plan to cultivate these programs, grow enrollment and provide rewarding
employment opportunities to the community.
